    GCSEs don't mean ****, really
    they MIGHT matter very slightly if you're applying for oxford or cambridge, but other than that, no.
    Oxford and Cambridge are stupid then

    well there you go, GCSEs are extremely useless
    they're basically what you'd need if you wanted to work for mcdonalds or something in my opinion - and even then, it's not essential. it's just a little trinket that says you didn't drop out of something.

    If you don't enjoy them, then why do you care, don't take them seriously. If you enjoy a subject, then do it, have fun basically

    Same here, how did Einstein and Newton discover their fields, through doing physics with time limits?

    you don't *have* to do well in gcse to get onto an a level course. I did badly in chemistry gcse yet I still got onto the a level for it.

    GCSEs are quite important, obviously not nearly as important as A-Levels but still important in their own right
    If you get less than what you were hoping for your ego might suffer especially if people around you achieve better results
    You'll have plenty of time to relax and procrastinate in the summer, now is the time to make a final effort with revision to make sure you won't be disappointed with yourself on result's day
    Good luck and I hope it all goes well

    OCR indeed. I thought it was more difficult than last years paper but it was generally an alright paper. I think worst case scenario I will get 70. Why did you hate the paper?

    I just thought C4's six marker was horrible, and also I thought that in general it was just much harder than usual, that's the general consensus around my school too! Oh well, onwards and upwards to physics! Any ideas?

    That's strange since I found C4 6 marker the easiest (along with the final six marker)! But anyway, as you said "onwards and upwards to physics" now. I have no clue what may appear. I have yet to revise P5 and P6 tomorrow and do a billion past papers . If I make any predictions I will share them with you. Good luck .

    I have 2 more GCSE exams and i've already done 16 but im sooooo worn out i cant even revise anymore, everytime i try revise i get distracted, things dont go in my head and i get generally lazy, especially seeing that most of my friends have already finished their exams yesterday. Can somebody give me advice or words of encouragement because i seriously cant be bothered to revise even though ive worked 2 years towards these exams
    Keep going. A levels next. Then university. Then work 5/7 days for the rest of your life
